### Change in area on a 3-sphere bounded by a trajectory due to a differential change in trajectory

I have a 3 dimensional spherical topology, and I draw a curve onto the sphere labelled by $\vec{n}(\vec{r},t)$. The area bounded by the curve is termed the "Wess Zumino Action" (Hence my motivation to ...

### Hausdorff property in Minkowski spacetime

In the 4-dimensional Minkowski spacetime, for a given point $x = (x^0,x^1,x^2,x^3)$, its timelike future/past set is defined as,  I^{\pm}(x) = \{y =(y^0,...,y^3) \in \mathbb{R}^4 : \eta_{\mu \nu}(y-...
